  • When perfect Christianity can never be enough

    A few weeks ago, I watched a movie on TV called “The Perfect Family.”
    Right away, just by the title, you know they’re not perfect.
    The main character is Eileen, the mother of the family. A devout Catholic, she attends Mass every day, and at confession she confesses every sin she can think of down to her gossipy thoughts.
    She serves communion and delivers food to the homebound. She’s careful to pray before meals and keeps a family altar in her home.

  • Why are Christians such bad restaurant tippers?

    The headline caught my eye — “Why are Christians such bad tippers?”
    It was a story responding to something that recently went viral on the Internet when a restaurant server was fired after posting a copy of a customer’s credit card receipt online.

  • Church names reveal little about what’s inside

    On Nov. 24, the Jameson family named their newborn baby girl Hashtag, after Twitter’s use of the (#) symbol.
    The year before, an Egyptian man named his son Facebook, and in 2011 an Israeli couple named their baby Like.
    These babies join celebrities’ babies Spec Wildhorse Mellencamp, Moxie Crimefighter Jillette, Pilot Inspecktor Lee and Audio Science Clayton, which makes Apple Blythe Alison Martin sound almost traditional as a baby name.

  • Witnessing the power of a soggy stamp

    Twenty years ago this year we had a devastating storm blow through our area that we call the No-Name Storm.
    Afterwards, people sprang into action to help those whose homes were damaged. I wanted to help, too.

  • Are you God-intoxicated? Consider how you talk

    James Denny, the Scotch theologian, warned his students against thinking they could learn all there was to know about God during their seminary studies. “Gentlemen,” he would say, “to study infinity requires eternity.” As a current seminary student I sometimes wonder if I will ever be finished
